Desi is a very good listener and provides very helpful insight. Makes me see things from a different perspective. I appreciate time spent with Desi
I was very skeptical about seeking therapy. She was also my first therapist but so far my experiences have been excellent. I feel like I come to her with such chaos but by the end of the session, the chaos is managed. I’m very thankful.
I came to Desi at a bad time in the beginning of the pandemic. She really helped me get through a crisis. I will always appreciate it. Regardless if this is her job or not. She really cares and shows you that. It also helps that she is open to talk about religion. Thanks Desi! I will always appreciate you.
Fantastic Help from Desi. She’s a great listener and very much helps you to figure out your own feelings and what you need to do.
Desi has made a world of difference in my life! Her practical tips have been the most effective in managing my stress and anxiety levels. Her positive vibes and energy make you feel empowered as you walk away from a session. I highly recommend her sessions!
Desi is wonderful. A great listener with excellent suggestions. She is good at pointing out the positives and asking good questions to help me understand what I am feeling.
I trust her. And I do not trust easily. I have been on betterhelp in the past and went through several therapists, and I was unable to make that trusting connection. But now I have definitely found one I can trust. I highly recommend her because she makes me feel I can take on the problems I am dealing with and gives me the tools/ guidance I will continue to need to feel happy again.
I'm actually surprised at how helpful these sessions have been and it's barely the first month yet.
I enjoy talking with Ms. Isidro she is very kind and listens to your every need. She even reaches out when you need it the most.
Dr Desi Isidro was a great listener and gave me recommendations on how to better change my perspective on things. And most importantly to focus on myself and less what other people do or say.
I have been to other counselors in the past and I felt like they tried to bring up things from my past that were not issues for me. Desi made me feel like I had control of the conversation. We only spoke about what I wanted, when I wanted to. I felt so comfortable with her right from the start. She is kind and compassionate and I really look forward to our talks each week.
Talking with Dr Isidro has given me a safe, supportive, and personal growth inspiring challenge space. Her calm, wise, and intuitive advice is relevant and relatable.
Desi is an excellent listener but she also give advise something that is critical to many people in therapy not just someone to listen to their problems but also offer advice.
I absolutely love working with Desi! She brings in such an amazing energy and is open minded which sometimes it is hard to believe that someone amazing like this exists and I get to work with her. I don’t ever feel judged when I share my life stories with her and she always makes it about me and what I want in my life while guiding me to achieve these goals with integrity, love, and respect for myself and the people in my life. Thank you for believing in me always Desi and being the best support I could ask for.
Excellent counselor who really cares about the people she treats. Desi has helped me tremendously and her insight is invaluable.
Desi is EXCELLENT and very personable and understanding.
She was amazing in the few sessions we had.
I am so happy I found BetterHelp. I needed to get help to become more confident in myself and I am very thankful to Dr. Isidro for helping me with that. She is very friendly person, very respectful and can find the right words to make you feel good.
